Nowadays peaches, olives & strawberries tumble down one of Alexandra's historic sluice race's from the long gone gold mine. There is plenty of sunshine however to give you gold in your tan if not in your pan on this awesome ridge. Orchard Rise falls to a tranquil valley and quiet double glazed & insulated home. It is hard to believe how close it is to the cafes & shops across the river, the willow hung river trail to Clyde, and the duck and wildfowl habitats on the hill. Explore on foot or use the mountain bikes provided to check out the trails of nearby Jolendale park, The Roxburgh Gorge Trail or the Rail Trail. There are many golf courses, motorbike, BMX and mountain biking areas and some lovely swimming spots as well as the local pool & multisports complex. We are two minutes from the Clutha boat ramp and ten minutes from Lake Dunstan & Clyde. Cromwell's historic quarter & Highland Park Raceway is twenty minutes away, Wanaka & Queenstown lakes with their adjacent ski fields within the hour. Trout fishing & historic site Boat Tours are available seasonally & there are movie theatres, museums, art galleries & public library in the local area. There are great art & winery trails nearby and boutique cafes and restaurants to visit in Alex, Clyde & the surrounding countryside. Pick your own cherries or stone fruit at nearby orchards in season or visit a roadside stall for tonight's dinner menu prepared in your spacious kitchen or on the bbq! Visit historic sites or take a day trip to St Bathan's Blue Lakes, the Nevis Valley or Thompsons Gorge. Or not. Day & night you can look out the window at the iconic Alex clock on the hill (& the many stars of our dark southern skies). Put your feet up with a friend, a book, a wine, a movie or a digital device. Welcome to your holiday!
